Kathy Griffin studied at Oak Park, and River Forest High School, where she took part in many theatrical productions, which later helped her decide about pursuing an acting career. Even though her parents were rather hesitant about her career choice, Griffin convinced them to let her move to Los Angeles, where she had more acting opportunities, and after arriving Kathy joined an improvisational and sketch comedy sketch troupe called The Groundlings, with whom she performed at various comedy clubs. It was with The Groundlings that Griffin was able to launch what became a successful career as a stand-up comedian.
